18-Oct-15: Lies, damned lies and murderous, self-deluding hatred

Palestinian Arab terror war propaganda: Delusional view of themselves
and their "struggle" [Source: MEMRI]
Without burdening readers with details of the torrent of Arabic-language Palestinian Arab incitement now flooding the social media and other mass market channels, we will simply remind everyone of the constantly-repeated claims they are making: that they are engaged in resistance, and that first and foremost it's resistance against the dreaded and hated Israel Defence Forces.

So here's an extract from a report published this morning by Israel National News: "Terror Wave: Three Victims in Critical Condition":
Hadassah Medical Center issued an update Sunday morning on the conditions of the terror victims currently being treated at Hadassah Ein Kerem and Hadassah Mount Scopus in Jerusalem. The 20-year-old IDF soldier who was stabbed by an Arab terrorist in Hevron on Saturday evening is now in light condition after undergoing surgery overnight. Two patients remain hospitalized after suffering wounds in the brutal knife and gun attack on Tuesday aboard a bus traveling in Jerusalem's Armon Hanatziv neighborhood. A 76-year-old man remains in critical condition from that attack, while a 69-year-old woman's condition has been defined as moderate. A 79-year-old man injured in the second attack in Jerusalem on Tuesday - in which an Arab terrorist ran over and stabbed Jews on Malchei Yisrael Street - is hospitalized with light to moderate wounds. The Border Policeman critically injured in the stabbing attack at Damascus Gate last Saturday has been transferred from Shaare Zedek Medical Center to Hadassah Ein Kerem; he is being treated in the hospital's intensive care unit. The two Jewish victims seriously injured on Monday in the stabbing attack  by two teenage Arab terrorists in Pisgat Ze'ev are being hospitalized at Hadassah Mount Scopus. The condition of the 21-year-old victim has vastly improved and he is being treated for light-to-moderate wounds. The 13-year-old victim remains in serious condition and is breathing through a respirator.

To be clear: none of this is a problem for the thuggish attackers themselves or those who sent them. They understand perfectly well what their goals are. They make no secret of it. Ahlam Tamimi, our daughter's murderer - as one instance among many - said it clearly: "When children are the target", August 15, 2014, Times of Israel]. These sociopaths are what they are.

But we think some light ought to be shone on the fellow-travelers, the dilletantish "protesters" on US campuses standing "resolutely" with the bogus "resistance", seeking "self-determination" and "justice" by egging on the indiscriminate lethal violence that is at the heart of their calls for “Intifada, intifada, we support the intifada”.

The word collaborators comes to mind. Also: useful idiots. (And yes, if you're asking. We do see these issues as personal.)

We're thinking of the ideological zealots parading this past week at Kenyon CollegeUniversity of California Berkeley, Washington State UniversityUCLA, Northwestern U, among numerous others.

Matti Friedman who spent years reporting for The Associated Press has some thoughts to which they ought to open their minds, but will surely not. The less doctrinaire among us should remind ourselves, via his outstanding analysis ["The ideological roots of media bias against Israel"], of how impossibly distant those fighters for justice and rights have allowed themselves to be from the goals they claim to seek.

Loathsome hypocrites.
